Hiyo, Quaker

Wednesday Ad Strip Day.

I love the way some movie companies used newspaper comic strip advertising as a way to lure the audience into the theatre with straight comic style adverts. Here is another way they did it, having the star of a movie endorse another product, while mentioning the movie. I guess it was cheaper than getting a picture. Or maybe they thought that kids would be more attracted to these ads for their choice of westerns.
